This is one of those things that you see in the world but don’t notice until someone points it out to you. At least that’s how these things work with me. I had noticed that there were “old” interstate signs and “new” interstate signs but I hadn’t really clocked everything to do with how and why the signs were different and what the problems were with the old font. This is another fascinating video on things that you don’t just think about too often. Design and how functional design works is certainly an obsession of our modern age. There are so many things that are designed to work a certain way to make life easier and safer. Who knew that highway fonts were one of those things?
